This weekend has been quite the whirlwind. We drove all the way up to Chicago for a show last night (totally worth it!). On top of that, at midnight last night, our kickstarter campaign came to a close. You guys really brought on the support in full force for this thing! 107 people contributed $5404 to Philmont to help support “The Transition EP”. It’s so humbling to have your full support in our ministry and we truly want to thank all who supported for helping give this new record the legs it needed to get out into the world. (Oct 19th is just around the corner!)

I wanted to talk a little bit in this weeks blog about accountability (hence the blog title). More specifically, how it relates to Galatians 6:1-5
“Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Keep watch on yourself, lest you too be tempted. Bear one another’s burdens and so fulfill the law of Christ. For if anyone thinks he is something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. But let each one test his own work, and then his reason to boast will be in himself alone and not in his neighbor. For each will have to bear his own load”
Who holds you accountable for your actions? Who is it in your life that makes sure you’re “walking the walk” when concerning your faith and not just “talking the talk”. I think as a Christian it’s crucial for us to have these people in our lives. It could be a parent, a pastor, a friend or even a girlfriend or boyfriend. (FYI- if you’re dating someone who cares about your faith walk on a day-to-day basis, that’s awesome! Bonus points for you)
My accountability partner is my wife. If I’m messing up you can bet she’s gonna call me out on it- and I love her for that!
To hold someone accountable the verse says to do so in a “spirit of gentleness”. Accountability isn’t about judging, it’s about speaking out in love and supporting each other.

If you don’t have someone to hold you accountable, I encourage you to connect with someone. A youth pastor is always a good source for this!

Until next week…
